Porcelain Presence

I was recently contacted by Emily E. Bibb, and had a chance to talk with her about her film project, Porcelain Presence.

This film project started with the first draft back in the summer of 2011, which was co-written by Emily E. Bibb, Chris Jay and Nicholas Mills. As any film maker knows, making a movie is never easy.

Knowing they didn't have access to this kind of support, I had to ask how they've managed this far. Come to find out, the project has been self funded this whole time by Chris Jay and Emily E. Bibb.

I could seriously go on for ages with this, there have been lots of different challenges to overcome, but bizarrely enough, in their own
